Stayed two days and nights in mid February at the Hotel Atitlan in Panajachel on Lake Atitlan. We stayed in the third floor junior suite with a private balcony that provided spectacular views of the lake and the volcanoes around the lake. The room was well appointed with a comfortable king size bed, pleasant sitting area around the wood burning fireplace, and a large bathroom with beautiful tile. The location of the hotel (about a mile outside of Panajachel) was very tranquil and getting into town on a tuk tuk cost only 15 to 20 quetzales and took but a few minutes. The only real negative about this hotel is the service. The front desk was understaffed (only one employee), at best marginally helpful, and often seemed annoyed to help the guests with even the most modest of requests. A hotel of this caliber that commands $189 per night (quite expensive for Lake Atitlan) should have a concierge or at least more staff to assist their guests. We did not have dinner at the restaurant, but the menu was nice, albeit a bit expensive. Breakfast was not included but there was a breakfast buffet which was quite popular amongst the other guests. Very nice outdoor dining area near the pool with great view of the lake. Service issues aside, this is a truly wonderful, immacutely maintained hotel that should not be missed if staying in Panajachel. Make a point to have dinner at Chez Alex on Calle Santander. Outstanding French and Guatemalan food with great service and very nice ambiance.
